Stars above the Mountains of Colorado

Stars above the Mountains

“If you’re lost out where the lights are blinding Caught in all, the stars are hiding That’s when something wild calls you home” Had the opportunity to do some snowshoeing in the mountains of Colorado yesterday with some friends (my first time!). After a day hike at over 10,000 feet above sea level, we returned with our gear to get some shots of the stars. … Continue reading Stars above the Mountains

The Milkyway Galaxy above Gooseberry Island in Westport, Massachusetts.

Pathway to the Stars

I found a pathway to the stars and its not too far from home 😀 Aligning the milky way galaxy with particular landscapes can prove challenging since the orientation of our galaxy’s core shifts directions as the months change. Thankfully, in the northern hemisphere, the summer months allow for the best milky way viewing fairly early in the evening. Now if we could just get … Continue reading Pathway to the Stars

Star Trails over Kalalau Lookout on the island of Kauai, Hawaii.

Kalalau Lookout. The End of the World.

During a once in a lifetime experience, I was given the opportunity to explore the island of Kauai in Hawaii. While there some friends and I made it out to Kalalau lookout on the Northwest side of the island. We stayed just long enough for the sun to set and a brilliant display of stars to shine.     Continue reading Kalalau Lookout. The End of the World.

Hiking Joffre Lakes in British Columbia

As a native New Englander, I’ve spent a decent amount of time in the mountains of New Hampshire, Vermont, and Western Massachusetts. I’ve been hiking and camping since I was just a small kid. Of course, the Appalachian Mountain Range isn’t the tallest or most extreme in the world, but they’re still amazing and I call them home. However, this past September I had the opportunity to travel to Whistler, British Columbia for a company-wide retreat. During which, I experienced a totally different wilderness in the Coast Mountain Range of Canada.

The National Park Service 100th Anniversary and an overnight hike on Mt. Carrigain

A few introductory words… At 30 years old, I’ve had the opportunity to do a bit of traveling in my day. I’ve seen many beautiful places and met some sensational human beings. That being said, I can honestly say that New Hampshire is still one of the most brilliant locations I’ve ever ventured through. A short 3 hour drive north from my mission HQ in … Continue reading The National Park Service 100th Anniversary and an overnight hike on Mt. Carrigain

Beach tomatos swaying in the breeze at Sakonnet Point in Little Compton, Rhode Island

The Salty Beach Tomatoes

A common sight on any New England beach is the beach tomato plant. This is actually an invasive species of Rose (Rosa_rugosa) that originates from Asia, but now occupies just about every beach along the coast of the north eastern United States! The rose hips resemble that of small tomatoes, but definitely shouldn’t be eaten! Download this photo and use it for anything you want at … Continue reading The Salty Beach Tomatoes
